HistoryEdit

The journal was established in March 1996 by the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology as a quarterly edition. It was subsequently adopted by the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand as its preferred journal, by the Japanese Respiratory Society and the Taiwan Society of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine as their preferred English-language journal and by the World Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology as an official journal. It gradually increased the number of issues to 12 per year. In 2008, an article processing charge was introduced. In 2015, the journal moved to online-only delivery.

An open-access sister journal named Respirology Case Reports was launched in 2013.[3]
